A HOMELESS PARADISE

I love stories that are interesting. This is one of those stories. Ceola Waddell Jr. is a 59 year old homeless man and has bee living at a busy underpass beneath L.A.’s 110 freeway. attitude and lifestyle are now on display for the world to see thanks to the internet. As of late, he has become an internet sensation. Check him out in the video above and peruse the story that I found on daiymail.com

“A homeless man who turned a freeway underpass into his personal paradise by furnishing it with a make-shift jacuzzi and four-poster bed has become a viral hit and unlikely tourist attraction.

Ceola Waddell Jr, 59, began living in the underpass in L.A.’s 110 freeway near Coliseum six months ago.

He has since foraged two porcelain toilets, discarded refrigerators, couches and two beds to transform the space into his personal refuge.

Despite becoming a viral hit thanks to a Facebook video of his dwellings, Waddell Jr faces having it all torn down by city officials.

They say the site is dangerous and that Waddell Jr has turned down their offers for help.

In a virtual tour posted to Facebook earlier this month, the cheery vagrant described the spot as ‘Paradise Lane’.”

Would you pay the $25.00 for a “room” in his “paradise?” You’ve got to give it to this guy, he’s taken a bad situation and made it better by his attitude. Additionally, he’s trying to be an entrepreneur. He better watch himself…. Uncle Sam will be calling!!!
